I've spent many nights at The Hotel at Kirkwood while in Cedar Rapids on business. The experience is one you don't expect. Modern design and furnishings plus a very nice restaurant have made my stays enjoyable and relaxing. This is a teaching center, the staff and students are well trained and accomodating. The menu changes regularly and the wait staff... More

We hosted a conference here and while it is pricey, you pretty much get what you pay for. One of the nicest luxury facilities I've ever worked with and perfect for a smaller sized conference as you end up pretty much owning the whole place. Everything is state of the art from meeting and breakout rooms to high end board... More

Although it is off-the-beaten path, this hotel is a teaching-hotel run by the hospitality students/teachers from Kirkwood Community College. The staff was very friendly and competent. The rooms were plush, clean, comfortable and quiet. The lobby & rooms were all very well decorated. We stayed as part of a park & fly rate. Although it is several miles from the... More

This is a great hotel to stay in. It was clean, quiet, and the staff was very courteous and professional. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the stay. We will definitely stay there again.

My wife and I had a unplanned opportunity to spend a night here. We were traveling for early Christmas with family in the area.

We stayed at this hotel for my husband's birthday weekend. We could not have been more pleased. We were a little leery about the five-star rating, but it is well-deserved! The motel is beautiful. We stayed in room 424, which is a corner king room. The room was very spacious, it was immaculately clean and very nicely decorated! I was... More

The terrific reviews here piqued my interest in this hotel close to the airport for a business trip. The hotel and the staff didn't disappoint. The hotel itself is modern, clean, very well appointed and warm. The staff were extremely accommodating without being burdensome at all.
